March 26-April 5, 2021

There’s nothing like celebrating the holiday of Pesach at Ramah Darom. Families from all over the globe gather together with us to create a marvelous extended family and community. Our all-inclusive holiday, in the North Georgia Mountains, has everything you need to celebrate a meaningful, fun and relaxing vacation with family and friends – new and old.

Throughout the week there hundreds of programs, trips, activities and lectures to choose from. Year after year, our Passover family comes back for this extraordinary, unique family retreat.

Policies

Immunization Policy

Guests attending a Ramah Darom Retreat must provide confirmation that they have read the Ramah Darom Immunization Policy and are up-to-date on all required vaccinations. Retreat registration forms will ask guests to certify that they, and all members of their immediate family attending a Retreat, meet all immunization requirements. We will not require guests to submit their medical records except in exceptional circumstances.

Note that not all states have the same requirements, but ALL vaccinations recommended by the ACIP are required at Ramah Darom Retreats.

Staff Gratuities

Staff gratuities are intended as supplemental compensation for our hard-working part-time seasonal staff (waiters, kitchen staff, housekeeping, shuttle drivers, etc.), all of whom work long hours at hourly rates. Your final Passover invoice will include a line item for staff gratuities in the amount of 2.5% of your reservation total. This is a minimum guarantee, but guests are always welcome to leave additional gratuities.

Pet Policy

Please note that NO pets of any kind may join you for your stay onsite, for any length of time.
